Default 10 - 20 knot Board

Just sold my Go 180 and am looking for something that planes early, goes fast and turns in that order. Not looking for a Formula board. Would love some advice from fellow riders.

My stats:
150 lbs,
advanced to expert sailor
90% of sailing is on a lake
10% ocean

other boards:
12'6" SUP 0-10 knots ( I love it!! forgot how much fun sailing was without foot straps)
94 ltr Trance 15-20 knots
74 ltr acid 20 knots plus

I am looking for a board to fill that all important 10-20 knot hole in my quiver. I am hoping to match this with either a freerace sail such as a GTX or a fast freeride such as a Matrix.

I would therefore appreciate some advice on which board will get me out on the water early but yet keep me there while I am out. Because money is a factor I am considering older boards but might hold on and save up for a new one if the performance difference is that large. The following is a list of the boards I am looking at. If somone could please comment on their suitability for my conditions and weight, relative performance and ideal 2 sail combo I would greatly appreciate it.

Boards I am looking at In chronological order

2005 Compact
2006 138 FType wood
2008 122/133 Futura
2008 122 iSonic (would have to save up for this one)
